Listen /

Li Baodong

The Security Council President for the month of June expects a busy agenda, with Syria at the top the list.

Ambassador Li Baodong of China says there will be 30 items covering issues involving mainly the Middle East and Africa.

On 7 June, UN-Arab League Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan will come to the Council to brief members on Syria.

Mr. Li says that will be an opportunity for the Council to look at ways of helping Annan strengthen his hand in dealing with Syria.

"I think that in Syria they must fully implement Kofi Annan's 6-point peace plan, immediately without any delay stop killing people, launch inclusive political process and bring back peace and stability in that country."

The Council presidency rotates each month among its 15 members in alphabetical order by country name.
